Annette,

I set up my links with new windows because I always right-click and open links in new windows, but apparently there are legions who hate new windows. (shrug) Have to be a good host.

Thanks for commenting. Glad you liked the post.

One more thing about the devil is that the victory has already been won. We do not need to fear him, merely be aware that he lies to us, as that is his only remaining weapon. Jesus made a triumphal entry demonstrating a complete and utter victory. When Christians blame the devil for something, they are misled, for he has NO POWER.
